30th November 1834

Syms Covington Journal:
Anchored at Castro (the old capital) on Sunday the 30th. This town is situated on the South part of the island of ChiloƩ, a channel is formed here by the latter and the island of San Pedro. The town is built on a flat tableland about a mile square each way, has a church, but all in ruins, the houses all built of wood. The inhabitants are but few in comparison to what there were when it was the capital.
